Big Smoke Poetry accepts submissions from Canadian writers on a rolling basis. If you would like to submit your work to us, please send 1 or 2 poems as an attachment to the following email address: No author bio or cover letter is required with your submission. Just let us know what city/town/territory of Canada you call home.

We realize that your poems are important, so we’ll do our best to respond within two months. If you haven’t received a response from us by then, feel free to send us a query regarding your submission.

Big Smoke Poetry has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to writing that supports misogyny, racism, homophobia, transphobia or other forms of discrimination. Please do not send us this writing. It will not be accepted.

All submitted poems should be original, previously unpublished work. If a poem you have submitted to Big Smoke Poetry is accepted for publication elsewhere, please let us know and we’ll remove your poem from consideration.
